    What theme are you using? If child theme of bp-default, copy over footer.php of bp-default theme into your child theme folder. Open it up and delete
    `

    “<?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by WordPress and BuddyPress.’, ‘buddypress’ ), ‘http://wordpress.org’, ‘http://buddypress.org’ ) ?>“

    Create a child theme of the BuddyPress Default theme.

    Then, copy over /plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/footer.php to your new child theme, open up footer.php, then read this:

    What BP-compatible theme are you using? If you’re using the bp-default theme, you should not make changes directly on that theme because it will be overwritten when you upgrade BP plugin. You need to create a child theme instead.

    Copying footer.php from bp-default theme into child theme folder per tutorial (if you want to use bp-default theme and customize it) and upload to server is just like copying over some a file from one folder to another in your computer then FTP/cpanel upload to server.

WHen transfering footer to be put inside the child theme folder sitting along side the style.css. Please help.

    == i got a message to the tune ” you cannot edit this file” ==
    At this time, WP prevents theme editor for BP-default child themes. So you should download bp-default theme’s footer.php to your computer and edit it there. After you edit and save footer.php, upload it to your server via FTP/cpanel, etc. wp-content/themes/name-of-your-child-theme-folder/
